Barcroft’s unique exemplary school project, the Leonardo da Vinci Project, is modeled after Leonardo da Vinci’s actions as a thinker. Barcroft students ‘Learn Like Leonardo’ by being: well in body and mind, balanced thinkers, curious, risk takers, good citizens, communicators, reflective, open-minded, aware and problem solvers. By employing creative and scientific thought throughout their learning experiences, Barcroft students are challenged with focused thinking and problem-solving activities. The highly regarded project provides students with explorations of their academic studies through interdisciplinary thematic units.

Barcroft Elementary School is the only Arlington school that follows a modified school year calendar. This calendar balances the school year and provides continuous learning opportunities for all. Summer learning losses are reduced due to the shorter summer break. Each quarter is followed by either a two week Intersession, where students study in extension courses, or a break during the school year to provide continuous learning cycles.
